Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Winwood on Mickey

Haven't listend yet, but per our recent talks about Winwood and my ongoing boring tirade about how Mike Campbell is the shit (MUDCRUTCH), thought this might be of interest to some folks:

Cold Turkey with Steve Winwood and Mike Campbell



Cold Turkey has tapped two recent Relix cover subjects for its most recent episode: Steve Winwood and the Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell. Co-hosts Mike Greenhaus and Benjy Eisen sat down with the rock legends, who spent the summer on the road together, at San Francisco's Outside Lands last month. For his part, Winwood discusses Blind Faith, his new solo album and his first meeting with Mickey Hart, while Campbell waxes poetic about Jerry Garcia, the Super Bowl and how the Heartbreakers "learned to improvise." Please visit www.relix.com/radio to hear the complete interview.

(Crystal River is the real song in concert - full on Keith and Jer interplay/homage by Campbell and Benmont Tench)

Lover of the Bayou...excellent but not unpredictable song selection out of Petty. Still have a preference for the Byrds live version with Clarence White. Thanks for the heads up on the vid...looks like fun.

Nope, not unpredictable at all. The live set consisted of "Shady Grove", "Lover of the Bayou", "Rainy Day Woman", "High School Confidential", etc. It was like an extremely talented late 60's/early 70's cover band. Good fun - and nice to see those guys play in a very loose environment (Santa Cruz Civic) w/o the nonsense/scope of the Heartbreakers.

sounds great. I've been diggin the Mudcrutch. I've also been digging Winwoods return to his glory. So much more inspiring than whatever that higher love thing was about.

Thanks for that, the Mudcrutch was fun. I just sent one to by brother for his birthday and sent one to myself. I didn't know! I don't get out much, apparently...
